Whimsy Stamps Design Team - January 2018 Release #2

Hi there 💜

Today I'm here to share the 2nd of Whimsy Stamps new January release digi stamps.  Both the pig and the sentiment are part of a sheet of other images and sentiments so it's good value for money. Isn't it the cutest pig ever!!

To show the little pig off I went for a CAS design and kept the colours simple. I coloured this over Christmas period while staying with my daughter so my pencil collection was extremely limited, but it does show that we can all colour using only a few pencils. All the links to the Whimsy products can be seen below. I hope you like it.

Here's What I Did
The pig and sentiment were printed onto a piece of Kraft card and die cut it into a square. The pig was coloured in using pencils - the pencils were used to blend, no solution was used. White pencil was added first to give the highlighted area, then colour and shade were gradually added. To finish the image crystal glitter was added to the red heart.  
The coloured in topper was matted onto some pink card, and a die cut frame was glued around the pig. The completed topper was attached to the 5" x 5" Kraft card base using foam pads to give it dimension.

Here's What I Used
Digital Stamps: 'Love Me Tender' Digital Sentiment Sheet (this contains the sentiment and pig)

Other: Kraft Card, Pink Card, Inverted Scalloped Frame Die (Spellbinder), XXL Stitched Edge Square Die (Crealies), Foam Pads, Graphics Program, Lyra Pencils, Caran D'ache White Pencil
